Dear Old America Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Standing in line on the depot floor
Taking my time getting through the door
Daddy said "Go!" and mama just cried
Sister said "Devil's on the other side"
Hurricane blowing, water gets high
Can't turn around or I'll drown in lies

When I get back I'm gonna own this town
Shine that medal and wear that crown
Fall on my knees and kiss the ground
Dear old America

Run run rabbit save your rabbit skin
Jump right back in your hole again
Bullets they cry whispering drone
Fire in the sky God's on the phone

When I get home I'm gonna shove my doubts
Dream my dreams and shut my mouth
Nobody knows what this is all about
Dear old America

We don't beg and we don't run
We don't lose, we don't overcome
Purple mountain majesty sliding to a broken sea
Daddy he swear and mama she cry
"My sweet baby she's bound to die"

When I get back I'm gonna feel just fine
One more day I'm gonna do my time
Ain't no hammer gonna ring like mine

When I get home I'm gonna shove my doubts
Dream my dreams and shut my mouth
No one knows what this is all about now

When I get home I'm gonna shove my doubts
Dream my dreams and shut my mouth
No one knows what this is all about

Dear old America
